These Are My Confessions…

Confession 1: Sometimes, I am a messy cook.

Yes – Miss type A, germaphobe, neat freak sometimes can’t keep it all together in the kitchen. It’s true. That’s what helpful husbands are for – cleaning up after the messy chef!

Confession 2: I tried something new tonight - Israeli CousCous.

The verdict? SO COOL! Here’s what it looks like uncooked.

Cute huh?

Be careful with these suckers – they roll everywhere!

Confession 3: I hate my kitchen countertops. 

Don’t let anyone ever talk you into getting white tile countertops in your kitchen. I wish someone would have told that to my home’s previous owners! :evil:

Confession 4: Tonight’s dinner, Lemon Pepper Chicken with CousCous Salad & Roasted Vegetables, rocked my face off!

I sprinkled some chicken breasts with lemon pepper seasoning and cooked them up on the stovetop.

After they were cooked, I placed them on a bed of CousCous Salad. In the mix:

  • 1 cup dry Israeli couscous, cooked in 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 large cucumber (peeled, seeded and chopped)
  • 3 roma tomatoes (seeded and chopped)
  • capers
  • splash of Italian salad dressing
  • juice of one small lemon
  • salt & pepper
  • dashes of oregano and thyme

I LOVE ISRAELI COUSCOUS!!! They’re like chewy pearls of love. Seriously! Cook for 10-12 minutes at a ratio of 1:1.5 – couscous to broth/water, for some seriously amazing stuff. :)

Confession 5: I can’t get enough roasted vegetables.

I could eat them every day of my life. I followed my usual recipe!

The crunchy roasted vegetables were a great contrast to the soft and chewy Israeli couscous. Yum!

Have you tried roasted cauliflower yet?

An amazing, flavorful and healthy dinner – what more could you ask for!? :)

Confession 6: I always leave room for dessert.

Even when eating cleanly and mindfully, there’s a place for a sweet treat – everyday. :)

Hey everybody! Ahhhhhh – I finally made it to the gym – it was so great! I hopped right on the treadmill, ran 5.5 miles and walked 10 minutes, for a grand total of one hour spent on the dreadtreadmill.  It actually wasn’t too bad – however I SWEAT like nobody’s…
